Who is using PHO?

I have a potential new source and the first time I picked up I noticed the box says partially hydrogenated. I've heard some say it's fine and others say to stay away. This would be a small portion of my total, but I'm concerned about contaminating everything with the PHO. So, how big of an issue is it? Are people only using it during the summer? I have a heated V3 system and I've heard that makes a difference?

Any feedback would be great. Just trying to decide if this small source is worth the hassle or not...every little bit helps, so I'd like to use it if I can...

The difference is negligible. Neither you or your truck will not know the difference.

PHO is not a problem once it is heated up. It starts behaving and looking line clear vegetable oil once it hits about 90*F

So you will need a heated system to clean the PHO(pre-filtering), then a heated system in your vehicle to burn it.

If you have that setup already, take the oil.
